Unlocking Children’s Potential: Embracing the Power of Creativity

We will be delving into all aspects of the Arts and finding out how a curriculum rich in these experiences can ignite imaginations and fuel powerful learning.

We also hear from Pete Moorhouse and Anni McTavish, leading educationalists and passionate advocates of the Arts – as well as Emma-Jo Bairstow who works with schools to develop the teaching of Art in the classroom.

Pablo Picasso described every child as an artist – and our challenge is to ensure we enable this to flourish as each child grows!

All About Children’s Work & Meeting Expectations in KS1 Full Day $175.00 Cambridge 21 May

All About Children’s Work & Meeting Expectations in KS1

Course description

Although many classrooms have elements of continuous provision in KS1, particularly in Year One, there is still much uncertainty as to how best to make it work and how it might be used in Year Two. Questions such as ‘How can we ensure that children are challenged and making progress whilst engaged in self -initiated learning?’ and ‘How can we best evidence self-initiated learning?’ need answering.

During this course, delegates will explore how children can be taught the skills and approaches needed to become independent learners, increasingly able to manage the planning, evaluating and evidencing of their own work. This session will focus on a cycle of learning that builds up manageable ways to evidence learning through planning and recording and shares high quality examples of this approach in practice.

Big, Big Maths: Working with Maths on a Large Scale

During this twilight we will explore the ways in which children use their muscles and minds together as they learn.

Through highly active, physical experiences children thoroughly embed their understanding of early mathematical concepts and learn to use mathematical vocabulary in purposeful and meaningful ways. This twilight will outline the key experiences, resources and organisation which are needed to support and extend children’s early mathematical thinking and will provide valuable strategies for providing inspiring maths in a big way.

Benefits

The Enquiring Mind: From Wow to Understanding How Twilight $35.00 Cambridge 23 Apr

The Enquiring Mind: From Wow to Understanding How

Course description

In today’s rapidly changing world, children need to be able to do much more than repeat a list of facts. Supporting children in developing thinking, rather than just learning facts and skills ensures that children are taught the skills that they will need in later life. They need to be critical thinkers who can make sense of information, make inferences, analyse, contrast and compare. Providing opportunities for children to question, share ideas, predict and hypothesise is critical for cognitive development and allows children to learn how to learn.

This workshop will explore ways that teachers can stretch children’s thinking, offering them challenges that fire their imagination and help to develop their problem-solving skills.

Benefits

  • Deepen understanding around the importance of developing thinking skills and how this impacts on high quality teaching and learning
  • Explore resources that promote and inspire curiosity
